Envy of a movie star #Flash fiction


People envy me. They say that I have everything: Beauty, money, fame and a rich boyfriend.  But, behind this beautiful face lies a depressed soul. Every day, I struggle to maintain my physique. I eat sparingly, spend hours in the gym and stay away from food cravings. Frequently, I have to undergo painful cosmetic surgeries. I’m constantly worried about bagging a meaty role in the next movie.

I lost my happiness, peace, and privacy when I became a movie star.  A small argument with my boyfriend became flashing news. Recently, a politician commented vulgarly about the dress I wore to an event. Some perverted people did photoshopping and created my nude photos.

After all this, I have to smile in front the camera even when I feel like crying out loud.

Look at my maid. How happily she is cleaning the room! I envy her!
